Boogat is an MC/producer with a highly cosmopolitan approach, mixing Latin styles with hip urban, hiphop and electronica sounds sounds, to very upbeat effect. Neo-Reconquista is the strong follow-up to 2013's well-received El Dorado Sunset. Boogat co-produced the album with acclaimed studio wizard Jean Massicotte (Lhasa), who also plays multiple instruments and did some co-writing. Boogat has previously utilised such guests as Radio Radio and Lido Pimienta, and here Pierre Kwenders lends a hand on the irresistible "Londres". Music to accompany a pitcher of sangria on a sunny patio!
The album was launched earlier this week at Montreal's Théâtre Fairmount. He performs at Ottawa's National Arts Centre on May 22 and at Quebec City's Place D'Youville on July 13.
